Celebrating the work of the Thurrock Camera Club

THURROCK Camera Club have had an exceptional year in 2015. Having won many local competitions against other Essex photographic clubs we were entered into the EAF ( East Anglia Federation ) with clubs from Lincolnshire, Beds, Herts, Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambs taking part.

The top three clubs would proceed through to the National Finals to be held at Ellesmere Port Liverpool. Thurrock managed to come third in the competition, behind Ipswich and the Beyond group (Suffolk).

In October the club went up to Liverpool to compete at the highest level in amateur photography in the country. Unfortunately we did not win with Dumfries (Scotland) and Stafford tying for 1st place However we did win best newcomer as it was our first time in the finals and one member had his picture selected by the organizers as best picture.

Thurrock Camera Club has been in existence for 90 years. It is a very friendly club and meets every Tuesday between September and June. The club caters for all abilities and levels of experience. We are always looking for new members. Our youngest member is 14 with our oldest being over 80.
